Dorsetshire Regiment

Died 14th September 1914


Arthur Robert


He was 26 years old.


I found a family tree on Ancestry and emailed the owner who very kindly said that I could add the following information:


The records show that Arthur was mobilised on 5 Aug 1914 and a member of the British Expeditionary Force from 15 Aug 1914 to 14 Sep 1914. On 12 Sep 1914, he was taken to a Field Hospital with Shrapnel wounds to the left shoulder. The following day he was transferred on board S.S.Carisbrook Castle to the Base Hospital in England.

A telegram was sent on 16 Sep 1914, to the Exeter Headquarters, informing them that Arthur Robert Pearce, 7778 had died, the Paymaster being informed on 19 Sep.

After his death, his widow was sent a gift by HRH Princess Mary which was acknowledged with gratitude on 3 Feb 1915. At the time, she was living at 54 Usher Road, Roman Road, Bow E.  On 23 Mar 1915, his widow Maud Martha was contacted to see that she had received Arthurs’s 1914-1915 Star medal, and the balance of his estate. On 5 Apr 1921, correspondence was sent to her under her new married name of Martin, enclosing the Mons Star and ribbon, to 10 Monier Road, Old Ford, Bow E3. She requested that if any further awards were to be made, she desired them ‘for the sake of his son’. On 5 Oct 1921, the British War and Victory Medals were sent, and safe receipt acknowledged on 17 Oct 1921.
